'A slap in the face': Families of COVID-19 victims slam president's downplaying of his diagnosis

Families of victims killed by the coronavirus decried the president's latest tweet downplaying the pandemic, which has killed over 210,000 Americans.

By 2030, few will remember gas vehicles anyway. Just grandstanding Can we work on improving California's 'electrical grid' in the meantime perhaps? Elect stupid and expect smart? California voters hello? Great way to start somewhere...However only hope individuals can afford the new requirements. At this rate, our economy isn't stable or secured!!

i can’t wait too see all the new cars that are going to come out 😲 In other news, Californians are leaving the State at ever increasing rates. The next governor will change that So...by the time everyone who currently runs car companies/is in office, is dead... Wonder if Elon will slate California for this decision.

How can that be ? How do you get electricity? By burning fossil fuels. Our dip-shit Governor impoverishing California one law at a time Good for them By 2050, California will be back to horse & buggy since the power grid will collapse and nobody can own a car. Pretty sure this will have less than 0.1F effect on global temperature. But it will cost a whole lot.

Don’t like it? Everyone move out! There will be less traffic on the road... RIP California. No economic base. No middle class. No money. kh93291 Now, do China... or anywhere else.. That will work great with California's super amazing failsafe foolproof energy grid. yeah, and still cancel people ... !!! Same state that blew $5 billion on the bullet train

Someone will get elected and change the law as always And you’re going to do what to help us afford these more expensive cars? chick_fury Won't be anyone left in California to drive anyway. I really wish Cali would just secede and become its own country. Yes yes yes, some good news for today. Have a feeling a lot more people are about to bounce from that state. So many already have. Now even more of a reason to leave. California is going to loose a lot of tax payers in the coming years. State is falling downhill rapidly.

So, to review; He signed an order that won't take effect until after he's out of office? Some people on here hate the Fires and blame it on liberals. Yet they dont think this is a good idea. They call is communism. The mind of idiots is astonishing. Actually, CO2IsInnocent. Calif would do much better in reducing air temperatures by increasing rainfall. Work on that, Gov. Newsome.

Hey Newsom... what are you going to do with all the gas powered cars... put in a landfill?! That will help for sure... What a total Dem loon! Goodbye CA! Newsom is an out of control Dem loon! Period. Wish ev's were more promoted in Illinois since they are cheaper all the way around than ice cars What a crock of crap 💩

After polluting the rest of the planet with your massive fires,,,tool🤚 Wow it's exactly like my country You know we are doing like you but In a different way We stopped producing a car recently that had been stopped producing around 20,25 years ago by Hyundai See we do the same but In whole different way And our governments feel really good 'bout it

Newsom very soon you must step down don’t bulshit How is that ambitious? By 2035 climate change has evolved to the point of no return if proper measures are not taken long before. Well I Nevada Arizona and Oregon are going to be selling cars like crazy! Is he aware electric cars use a lot of power and that California already has blackouts?

This is why the Electoral College exists. This is a clear abuse of power by one highly populated state to dictate what the rest of the states must do. Trying to stop the every year's wild fire is much useful for climate than this. 15 years to fix that power grid or you will have cars that go nowhere So the state that can't keep their electric grid running when it hits 85 degrees is going to demand you drive an electric vehicle...

Leadership GavinNewsom Bad time to own a gas station in California I guess. Find his connection to the auto industry and we’ll understand this obvious regulatory capture. All legal posturing aside, there should be incredible progress in electric & renewable vehicular tech in 15 years Like all Executive Orders, this one is only good until there is another executive in office. That will happen more than once before 2035. Do not expect this particularly wild, unachievable fever dream to stand once Nancy Nephew Newsome is out of office. A bonfide flake.

The air quality is so poor there. Maybe think about getting a real train service for LA before that. Good luck with that! Gavin Newsom is a nut job! Daniel LaRusso is NOT pleased. How can a prominent auto dealer like him make it now? Sure thing So many issues with this. Technology will need to make some big leaps to achieve this. Better get ready to use a shit ton of nuclear power plants

It won’t matter. By that time everyone will have left. If the powergrid can´t hold regular demand right now, I imagine how it will perform with 2 or 3 million EVs running around. Lol.. handle your forest management and then get back to us about carbon emissions. Brain dead Gov. Try managing the forests for real results.

No one worries about how to recycle or destroy those batteries without polluting the environment ? So, ... let them eat cake? Where does the power come from to charge the batteries of the electric cars? Are all those sources green and reliable or will they walk to work and have no heat or ac? Bet the gov’s limo is gas.

NO more car dealerships in CA. A fantastic idea. Hard to enforce. Especially hard if we don’t have like-minded leaders at the federal level creating laws to fight climate change. Brownie point for effort GavinNewsom Plugging all those cars in for a charge will melt down their already faltering electric grid. Might want to fix that first if they can find the money.

Bye-bye California. How the f*ck can a governor just sign an executive order impacting a huge industry with such a radical demand? 💙 Car makers should setup HUGE dealerships on the California border just inside Nevada HIV AIDS is healed. Watch. ...and where is the electricity to charge these cars coming from?

California will zero car dealerships in 2035 DumpADemocrat today!! _kellan The cripples are now walking. Watch. Power grid unreliable so what could go wrong w/forcing more uses of the unreliable power. This really helps the less fortunate. Bravo to you sir! Funny. One more reason NOT to live there! henrikfisker

NASA, yes NASA, climate cooling. Science, not proven to be wrong computer models, that have not produced even 1 correct prediction. I’d rather see him set up a new arson task force as I continue to see more and more arson fires set in California. that would be more practical help for our state. But common sense -practical those are not things to be found in California.

Most of Hollywood just went up for sale. Direct violation of interstate commerce protections. Welcome to the broadcast And if China and India don’t at least match the US emission rates it won’t change a thing. Batteries=Lots of big holes in the earth to get those rare earth minerals out!! That's going to be a lot of damage!!

If this simply applies to new gas cars, then the market will adapt by selling the previous year's models. This is ridiculious, and shows how out of touch particular politicians are. Expect many lawsuits over this considering the ramifications that it will have if implimented. One more Trump election and maybe we can replace these idiot democrat governors, especially the elite children! Zero emission cars wild do nothing! How about forest management. Has there been a study on how much carbon was created by the forest fires.

California moves to end sales of new gas-powered cars and trucks by 2035California Gov. Gavin Newsom says the state will halt sales of new gasoline-powered passenger cars and trucks by 2035. This state is hell They can't even keep their lights on for residential and business... but yea... go ahead... Making it harder for people to own cars.

Shortly before that statement, Newsom lived up to those words by issuing an executive order mandating that all… Guess you can no longer be a muscle car person in that state huh.

California moves to end sales of new gas-powered carsCalifornia will halt sales of new gasoline-powered passenger cars and trucks by 2035, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced, a move he says will cut greenhouse gas emissions by 35% in the nation’s most populous state. Since we have degraded the discussion to only the extremes this is what we get. One side says it’s fake, the other side says we can force enough change in behavior to fix it. Neither is remotely true. California continues to be the “test case” so the rest of the States know what not to do. I can’t afford an electric car because I drive a tC and it run on regular gasoline.
